Now distributing: PETTICOATS 45!!

We are truly overjoyed to have copies of the truly incredible 45 by the Petticoats!!

It's amazing! One woman DIY punk band, who released this 45 in the UK in 1980. Fred described it as "The Slits meets The Who." I really love these songs and I think you will too!

Listen for yourself here:

The Petticoats are Stef Petticoat on guitar, vocals, bass, drums. This record is on Stef's own Bla Bla Bla Records. Those two songs "Normal" and "Allergy" are on the A Side, with another song "I'm Free" on the B Side. (Stef wrote on the back of the record: "This record contains 3 B sides - play loud!")

Front & lyric sheet:

Back & record:

THIS IS NOT A REISSUE. These are original, unplayed copies. I couldn't stop listening to the mp3s of these songs, so I wrote to Stef Petticoat and she still had copies of the record! I ordered a bunch of copies because I know a lot of people who would want one, and since they are shipping from Germany it's more affordable for everyone this way. They each come with an awesome lyric sheet as you can see in the photo above.

Stef Petticoat grew up in Germany and moved to the UK in 1978. She then formed the band Necessary Evil, who can be seen performing "Normal" in the amazing Super 8 footage below!

After Necessary Evil broke up, Stef formed the Petticoats. Check Stef Petticoat's offical website:

Her official bio is here. I'm currently doing an interview with Stef Petticoat that I will post in this space very very soon!!

If you would like to order a copy, you can get one for $12.50 postage paid in the US. If you don't live in North America, especially if you live in Europe, it probably makes more sense for you to just order one from Stef Petticoat directly. If you live in southeast Michigan and you don't want to pay for shipping, you can buy one for $10. Email me at and we can figure that out. (Additional price info here)

Again, any additional questions email
